Published Oct 06, 2011Since releasing their much-buzzed Zeroes QC in 2010, icy electro rockers Suuns have been busy promoting that debut full-length. Now, a year later, the group are looking to the future with a new twelve-inch single. Entitled Bambi, the record is due out on November 14 via Secretly Canadian.
Available on vinyl and digitally, it includes two songs and clocks in at just under 13 minutes. Here's what the band had to say about the new release [via One Thirty BPM]:
With a couple weeks off this summer in Montreal, we thought we'd take a crack at a few new songs. Stark and futuristic, these are extended jams that may or may not materialize as condensed versions of themselves on records to come. Open air textures, repetition and exploration were the name of the game for us on this one, and the finished product is a refined mining of the ideas that came out. "Bambi" is a creepy story of love lost and found, while "Red Song" is just that: a song about color.
If you want to satisfy your curiosity about the new material, you can stream both songs at the bottom of this page.
Meanwhile, Suuns are still in the midst of a lengthy tour of North America and Europe. Between now and early December, they will play shows with Chad VanGaalen, Miracle Fortress, the Besnard Lakes, PS I Love You, Handsome Furs and Battles. There are Canadian shows in Montreal and Halifax. Scroll past the tracklist to see the schedule.
